Mexico Politics: Mayor Marcelo Ebrard is in campaign mode -- for president "The mayor of Mexico City has thrown himself into the running for Mexico's presidency, making him the latest high-profile figure to enter the 2012 election fray.

Mayor Marcelo Ebrard, a career leftist who governs one of the largest urban centers on the planet, said last week that he would step down from his post by Jan. 1, in compliance with federal campaign rules, to devote himself to the race (link in Spanish).

Over the weekend, while visiting the cities of Guanajuato and Queretaro, Ebrard said Mexico was in need of a "new social pact" founded on "leftist ideals" that could appeal to voters who don't initially consider supporting the Democratic Revolution Party, or PRD."
